      You're graded on your work, not appearances

      Pros

      - Brilliant engineering managers who give timely feedback, mentor well and keep you in the loop - Amazing events organized by Workplace Experience Coordinators - Great higher level management - Engineers are given time and resources to address technical debt - No micro-management; what matters is the work you deliver - Very flexible work-hours; as long as you attend your meetings and get your work done, no questions are asked - Realistic expectations meaning amazing work-life balance and low stress; if you so choose it (there's always more work to be done) - Great testing approach (TDD) which means high velocity and confidence in product along with frequent deployments - Great compensation and benefits: RSUs with frequent vesting, ESPP, yearly bonus, good life/health insurance, pension plan with great employee matching on contributions - Generally all great engineers in the office (few bad apples who have no attention to detail or aren't good collaborators or sadly both) - Engineers own the technical side, if you want to change anything you can as long as you get your pull request reviewed

      Cons

      - There's A LOT of legacy components and a lot of work to be done to be able to scale more efficiently and addressing technical debt - Office politics: if you're not liked by a clique of people at the top you're probably screwed, you'll have a toxic employment and have people talking behind your back, there's certainly a few people you want to avoid as much as possible

      Pros

      - Recent tech stack - Flexible hours - Amazing Management - Good benefits - Very competitive salary - Defined career progression path - interesting work - Great culture. CEO + the others are very involved and very down to earth Honestly, I would highly recommend this place.

      Cons

      - Work/life balance is somewhat difficult to manage, but that's mostly because the product feels personal. There is an emphasis on "we made this", which makes you want to do more.

      Pros

      *.I have worked in different companies varying in industries and cultures, Rapid7 is definetly the best culture I have worked for. Not just because everyone is positive and driven but because they also get work done so it's a great balance. * Rapid7 has unlimited vacation days which shows how much they trust their employees * Compensation wise Rapid7 is average or above average * They have great work-life balance

      Cons

      * It is at an awkward time now where we have a lot of great products but not well integrated so it is at a transitional time from being a medium sized company to being an enterprise. * No RRSP retirement plan or matching from employer

      Pros

      - Struggling to find one

      Cons

      - No work life balance - No support cross departmentally (each department only cares about themselves) - Too much work that it causes you to lose sight of your own job, which in the first place you didn't even know what your job essentially was - Absolutely no culture. I cannot emphasize this enough. They expect you to be a robot and have no life. - LIMITED growth opportunities, in which they promise you that you have in your interviews here but you don't

      Pros

      Competitive salary Top benefits Shares Fantastic culture Fun & relaxed environment Amazing work/life balance A* offices Great incentives Hard working intelligent people

      Cons

      Due to size of company with offices/teams in many countries, you may find yourself working some unsocial hours to accommodate different timezones (depending on team or product you work on). It is not expected, however you may find that it would benefit you to make that effort.
